they know that these sanctions have absolutely crippled that economy. and so, what we would risk doing here in implementing a new round of sanctions is not just screwing up the negotiation, but sending a message to the iranian people, who are frankly way more pro-american than people might think -- >> right. >> -- that we aren't really serious about ultimately doing the deal they want. the hard-liners are isolated right now in iran, and we are, frankly, going to empower them if we show up at the table in the middle of these short-term negotiations with a new round of sanctions that even though they may take place in the future. this is about building confidence with the negotiators on the iranian side but also the iranian people. >> there's a political dimension to this. one of the polls we have, which is from reuters ipsos, on support for this deal show 2-1 support for it, which i was heartened to see. that doesn't necessarily reflect what i saw necessarily in the pundit class. but there's another moral dimension to this. i've heard a lot of people, along with some of your colleagues and c

, subsequent roads, transit and water investments helped fuel our economy and tie the nation together. more recently, the failure to address long-term funding has also been bipartisan. the bush administration ignored strong recommendations from their own private sector experts that they impaneled to give advice. although the obama administration did request and employ some modest funding in the recovery act and has proposed an infrastructure bank and talked extensively and i think sincerely about the need for investment, what has been lacking has been a specific concrete proposal from either party to address infrastructure financing in america. while the political maneuvering has secured here in washington, the gap in the highway trust fund has been growing and conditions of our roads, bridges and transit systems have been deteriorating. this puts america at a competitive disadvantage, complicates the movement of goods and people and contributes to congestion and pollution. at the same time, the needs grow, the resources are in significant decline. the gas tax has not been increased since t
blitzer in washington. big news for the u.s. economy today. hiring is up. unemployment is down. the jobs numbers for november were released this morning and they're much stronger than many analysts had been expecting. take a look. the economy added 203,000 jobs last month. that's 20,000 more than many of those economists had predicted. another surprise, the unemployment rate fell to 7% from the 7.3% a month earlier. that happens to be a five-year local and a real sign the economic recovery may be gaining some momentum. our christine romans is in new york watching all of these numbers for us. how significant are they, christine? >> it's significant, wolf. now you've got a trend in place for the year, you've got more than 2 million jobs on track to be created the best since 2005. it has been pretty in israble since the recession and the bubble burst and to say you're going to have jobs growth, on track for jobs growth, the best since 2005 is significant. you want it see these numbers, 200,000 a month and more and want to see it continue. the unemployment rate going down to 7%, wolf, the wh
and the economy. the data now raising concerns over what can still be accomplished in his next few years as president. joining us now is our political panel angela mcgrewen, fox knew political analyst, and ronow molono. the president used to enjoy euphoric ratings. now his approval rating is abysmal on all kinds of issues. so ways happening overall? why is this happening? what kind of take do you look at this -- what prism do you look at this through, angela? >> the bottom line is this. are you better off today than you were four years ago? most americans that elected this president yet again, now they're having buyers remorse, because most americans are not better off. if you look at the unemployment rate at 7% but for the black community, last check, it was 13%. the hispanic community has not lowered that much and for women and young adults, if you have a college degree, kelly, most people don't have a job today, so people are looking at this situation and though the president is a great orator, a great politician, motivational speeches do not make a more prosperous america. >> when yo
sure our economy works for every working american. it's why i ran for president. it was the center of last year's campaign. it drives everything i do in this office. and i know i've raised this issue before, and some will ask why i raise the issue again right now. i do it because the outcome of the debate we're having right now, whether it's health care or the budget or reforming our housing and financial systems. all of these things will have real practical imply cage for every american. and i am convinced that the decisions we make on these issues over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in america where opportunity is real. now, the premise that we're all created equal is the opening line in the american story. and while we don't promise equal outcomes, we've strived to deliver equal opportunity. the idea that success doesn't depend on being born in to wealth or privilege, it depends on effort and merit. with every chapter we've added to the story, we've worked hard to put those words in to practice. it was lincoln a poor man's son who star
's policies that they're killing the economy. the economy isn't dying at all. in fact, there are more and more signs it's thriving under the president's leadership. according to the new monthly jobs report out today, the economy added more than 200,000 jobs in november. and the unemployment rate is down to 7%, lowest level in five years. the president's enemies responded to the news the only way they know how by attacking the affordable care act. well, here's only a sampling of their reactions to the good jobs news. keep in mind, these are statements supposedly about the jobs report. speaker boehner said, we need to protect all americans from the fundamentally flawed health care bill. eric cantor had this to say. quote, stop obama care from reducing hours and eliminating jobs. peter roscom of illinois said we continue to see the lost coverage, cost spikes on the strain of the president's health care law. then there's this sugar plum from tom price of georgia who dug up the old refrain that millions of americans are going to see their policies canceled. it seems no matter what the news, it's li
looking pretty bad, the president's approval ratings are not looking good either. >> it hurt the economy. >> the economy is moving in the right direction and any sort of shutdown or shake, the uncertainty in washington is what is damaging the economy right now. >> as they take budget off the table temporarily, what is obama doing as his domestic priorities? >> he has to devote all of his attention into righting the healthcare ship. this is his legacy-defining item. the enrollment numbers are looking pretty good but that is in the front end. enrollment is a lot different than actually getting the 7 million people that they need signed up and having purchased health care. they are focusing big on colleges, on getting the word out to be able to get the young uninsured signed up to balance out that risk pool. >> i am not in that risk pool. if they are going punt on entitlements and taxes, which they're going to do, they will not do it next year either, are they? >> i am starting to believe that none of that can happen meaning structural changes to entitlements until we have another big elec
to the latest news of the day. jobs and the economy, we have the details. patricia, good to see you. this is a much better than expected jobs report. >> it was tin deed much better. but the numbers were encouraging, and there was reason to be cautious. >> reporter: the economy shows signs of improvement. lowering the unemployment rate to 7%. there was a healthy bump in higher paying manufacturing and construction. the numbers indicate the economic recover is gaining strength. >> we've had 45 consecutive months. >> while encouraging, there is still a long way to go. >> the economy will have to create between 200,000 to 225,000 jobs per month for the next couple of years. >> reporter: that may be difficult to achieve. the recovery is still on shaky ground with small businesses seeing a slow down for the year. that's significant because those businesses create two-thirds of new jobs. particularly hard hit has been the retail sector. despite slashing prices and opening their doors thanksgiving day retailers posted disappointing sales in november. >> you have a vicious circle if úpeople
that the sanctions would begin to unravel. i heard today that iran's president said the economy has markedly improved. they have not even put in place -- steps must be taken to repent for the erosion of the sanction. ultimately, the sanctions remain an essential element of the international effort to compel iran to dispel its nuclear the terror infrastructure and take apart all of the centrifuges and tear down the heavy water reactors and eliminate the current stockpile of enriched on weapond working radiation -- weapons that geneva does not address. none of it is necessary for a peaceful nuclear program. while israel is prepared to do what is necessary to defend itself, we share president obama's preface to see iran's endlear weapons program through diplomacy. for diplomacy to succeed, it must be coupled with powerful sanctions and a credible military threat. -- ae repeat that diplomatic solution is better than a military option, but a military option is necessary for diplomacy to succeed, as are powerful sanctions. we agree after a cup will of tough years, iran finally -- a couple of tough years, i

emergency jobless benefits. this, after friday's strong jobs report showing the economy added 203,000 jobs last month, sending the unemployment rate down to a five-year low of 7%. rick tyler, senior vice president of the strategy group and former spokesman for former house speaker newt gingrich. ellen ratner, talk radio news service bureau chief and fox news contributor. here now to talk about this. good to see both of you. >> thank you. >> good to be here. >> of course, more people working is always good news. do you think we need more placement, though, in jobs that are paying more than minimal wage or are more stable than part-time jobs? if so, how do we get there? >> we certainly do. part of the way we can get there is by developing more infrastructure projects because our infrastructure is crumbling in some places. certainly know the bridges and roads are doing it. jim pinkerton talks about this project he's got going. there are ways we can get these higher-paying jobs. every time there are people who make more money, they put more money into the economy. so that also stimulates the e
is coming to the table. iran's economy is in shambles. they were intended to force iran to the negotiating table. so the negotiations could stop progress toward a nuclear weapon. the sanctions were not intended to stop them from being able to accumulate. they were intended to break it back economically and forced into the table. that is the evidence i have. we need them at the table. we need them to agree to a different course of action. this is seeing the growth in centrifuges and pushing them further and further down the line toward developing a nuclear weapon. we need to change that. that is what the negotiations will lead to. >> your thoughts on that? how confident are you that a long-term deal can be reached? everybody says it will be extremely difficult. do you think they will want to reach one? will it be too tough to pull off? >> i remain skeptical because of all the reasons you stated, the lack of trust between iran and others. i do not trust iran. they have been up to some very bad behavior, supporting terrorist groups, moving toward a nuclear weapon. i am not just going to say i
the economy is going to do this year and next ahead of the election. >> yeah. i think the likelihood is that the economy will continue to grow at a 2% to 2.5% late next year. that's decent, but it's not stellar. given all they have said about reducing the deficit over the next few years, it leaves room for cutting taxes. i think what the uk needs is a rebalancing towards investment and exports. the government realizes this and i think as a consequence it's unlikely to do things to throw additional fuel on the fire of consumption. >> do you think the government is doing enough? are you expecting any measures, say, on planning tomorrow from the troika? would that have helped? we had construction pmis this week very strong, rising like a phoenix out of the ashes. but many suppliers saying the supply side of that market is still very, very underperforming. >> yeah. i mean, when it comes to the supply side of the uk housing market, it really is down to things like change, having a look at the green belt legislation, trying to, you know, incentivize local authorities to watch the yen gauge

given potential. it is because we know that when women and girl participate in economies, economic growth is greater than would be without them. where women and girls are given the chance to be educated and to get the healthcare they deserve to have, we know that societies benefit. where women and girls can participate in peace making and peace building as full members of society trying to resolve conflicts, we know that resolution is more likely to be sustained. it's a great honor for me to have this award. but it is a reminder of how much more we have yet ahead of us to accomplish. to make sure that tom's dream, tom's life, the examples of the award recipients with us and those unable to come, bring out in each of us our own commitments to what we will do to further the cause of human rights, universal human rights for every man, woman, boy and girl in the world. it is certainly what tom would expect us to do to hold high his ideals and by accepting this award and knowing that tom would not let me off the hook, otherwise, it is something that i will continue to be committed to i
